Pay parking will soon be in effect in several parks in West Vancouver.
Starting Monday, February 12, 2024, visitors to Lighthouse Park, Whyte Lake/Nelson Canyon Park, and Whytecliff Park will need to pay for parking year-round between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., seven days a week. In 2022, the District of West Vancouver council had asked staff to report back on pay parking in these parks.
The district has announced that visitors can pay for parking using the hangTag and PayByPhone mobile apps or the Impark website. Visitors parking in the parks will find signage with QR codes linking to the payment systems. During the program’s initial phase, parking rates will be $3.75 per hour, plus applicable taxes and transaction fees.
Current residents of the District of West Vancouver may apply for an annual parking pass at $20 per pass, plus applicable taxes and transaction fees, per year. West Vancouver residents must provide proof of current vehicle registration to an address in West Vancouver, and applications are subject to verification, which takes approximately two business days to process.
Each pass is issued to an individual vehicle/license plate. There are no limits to the number of passes per resident, and each pass will be valid for all West Vancouver parks in the program. These resident passes can be purchased anytime during the year through the Impark website and will be valid 365 days from the approval date. The link to purchase resident passes will be available here later.
The park’s net revenue generated from the program will be reinvested into the parks and other operational and/or capital costs. The link to purchase resident passes will soon be available on the Impark website and the Destination Parks Pay Parking Program page.
